director: Agnieszka Holland, production: 2019, Poland, United Kingdom, Ukraine
Still relevant film about honesty, truth, and humanity in times of greatest trial. Awarded with the Golden Lions in Gdynia, an international production telling the true story of a Welsh journalist who was one of the first to cover the Great Famine in Ukraine in the 1930s. The film was made in Scotland, Ukraine, Warsaw, and in the locations of the Silesian Voivodeship, including the building of the Silesian Voivodeship Office in Katowice, which played the Moscow editorial office of the New York Times.
In Agnieszka Holland’s film, among numerous foreign and Polish locations, you can recognise the interiors of the Silesian Safes located in Katowice at 3 Mickiewicza Street. The spaces of the Katowice treasury turned out to be so attractive to film-makers that several film action locations were arranged there, including the Moscow apartment of one of the characters and the London headquarters of the Western Mail.
